Bo Bolinger, G - 1955
Bo Bolinger was named a consensus All-American in 1955. He was a member of a group that came to be known as the "B Boys." Bolinger, along with Kurt and Robert Burris and Max Boydston, were from Muskogee and had been playing together since high school.

Bolinger was a key to an offensive line that led Oklahoma to a national title in 1955. Oklahoma finished first nationally in rushing and total offense. During that season, Bolinger finished ninth in the Heisman Trophy voting.

He was drafted in the 13th round by the Chicago Cardinals in 1956.
